Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Arnold Ventures awards $6M to study replication of Penn nursing’s transitional care model

(University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing) A $6 million grant from Arnold Ventures will support replication and rigorous study of the outcomes of the Transitional Care Model (TCM) in four US health care systems. Designed by a team at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing (Penn Nursing), the TCM has been proven in multiple National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded randomized clinical trials (RCTs) to improve health outcomes, reduce re-hospitalizations and decrease total health care costs among the growing population of Medicare beneficiaries.
